Walked for my heart... Drank for my liver...

The HeartWalk I was chair for happened last Friday. It was a good success! We had a lot of people from my company come out and walk, and Blondie ended up joining me too. The weather was INSANELY nice - one of the hottest days we've had this year, and the free lunch was pretty nice too. ;)

After the HeartWalk, Blondie trucked on over to the bar while I went back to work. The bar Blondie hit happens to be one of my favorite in SF (and my most favorite in downtown), and by the time I made it back to the bar after work, Blondie had decided it's his favorite bar too.

We chilled at the bar for awhile, enjoying the free happy hour food of meatballs, ritz, and cheddar cheese, before finally heading on over a few streets to meet Shelbs and Bbbbb to celebrate! That's right folks - Bbbb is headed back to downtown SF instead of the boondocks where he currently works now. We are very excited for him.

And we were also very excited for the insane German Beer Hall we ended up in after our happy hour. OMG. Seriously. So much meat. And beer. A girl could fall in love with the insane German Beer Hall. Anyone who comes to visit - we are making a trek here for dinner at some point.

The rest of the weekend was kind of a blur. I'm still battling the sick, and so I did spend a lot of time resting.

This week is insanely busy - trying to get a project finished up for launch next week. Keeping my fingers crossed this actually happens.

Big plans for this weekend though - Blondie is off to Santa Barbara for a bachelor party, and I have a hot date with a pan of lasagna and my crappy DVR'd TV shows (ANTM, 90210) and my non-crappy DVR'd TV shows (Top Chef, Project Runway, Glee). Looking forward to a weekend of literally not leaving my couch!!!

Hola chicas y chicos!

I'm back to working 40 hour weeks now and it blows chunks. Last week was my first full week back and I thought the day would never end. I even called Blondie on Friday at 2 pm and whined that I should be off work then. Go me!

For the big news - we had our first thunderstorms that we've seen since Texas!!!! We went to bed on Friday night and I woke up overnight (because that's the way I roll) and heard really loud thundering. Then the whole bedroom lit up from the lightning. Blondie slept through it, but it was still going on Saturday so he got to hear it then.

It TOTALLY freaked the cats out.

Because of the weather on Saturday, we both just stayed in. We ended up watching college football most of the day and relaxing.

Then on Sunday, I went and took my chi running class. I'm not sure what I think of it to be honest. I feel like it was a lot of $ for a lot of talking. Some of things helped, but it wasn't what I was expecting.

After class ended, my running buddy dropped me off at my fav bar in the city to meet up with the sisters C and HK and Blondie to spend the rest of the afternoon watching pro football!

Work this week has completely knocked me out. I'm getting sick again, and everything feels off. My Heart Walk is tomorrow though, and Blondie is going to come meet me for that. Hopefully they'll let us off early from work but not counting on it.

Cheers to the weekend!

Kentucky was a BLAST. I had so much fun visiting the fam it wasn't even funny. Everytime I go back east, I wonder why I like living west so much. Seriously. It's bad.

Blondie and I had smoking good flights both on the way out and back - which I don't think has ever happened.

We got in last Wed afternoon, and ended up playing games and drinking beers into the evening.

Thurs the bus came really early - early enough that I needed a "Hair of the Dog". But taking the bus up to King's Island was the best way to travel. We all got to sit around and talk, and not worry about how was driving. The park was also EMPTY that day. We got to walk onto every single ride all day long. It was INSANE.

Brother R, Mr Pooh and Cray Cray Uncle rode a giant bungee swing in the park, followed by me and Shugs, and it was the best part of the day I think - it only cost $5 each, and it was quite the ride.

I got to meet up with my BFF TT on Friday and hang with her and her man. We ended up bowling and playing Euchre into the early hours of the morning. I think her man was about to punch me to get me to shut up, but I was just so excited to see TT that I didn't care.

Saturday we went for sitdown Mexican (WOOT!) and then ended up playing games in the afternoon before going bowling and playing Rockband at the Poohs.

Also, a huge thanks to sis who got me sicker than a dog, and then I in turn infected Blondie. :) I had to call in sick on Monday (only the 2nd time in 3 years that's happened) and I still feel off today.

Also also, the nieces are SOOOOO CUTE I can't hardly stand it! TCKITW will actually talk to me now, and she has the cutest stick legs/giant feet combination possible. TCKITW v4.0 gets baby wrinkles as she "ponders" things and then makes her little "ewwww" face. I heart them both, and I am going to steal them back to SF with me *until they hit adolesence*. Then the Poohs can have them back.
